For the first time in five decades, the greater Bilby makes its way back to Australia! They were being taken care of at Tasmania before being moved to the Booderee National Park. Scientists attribute disease, predators, and habitat loss for their disappearance for more than 50 years. CEO of Save the Bilby Fund, Kevin Bradley, is determined to conserve the species.
"If we save the bilby, we will also be saving many other [species] that are less charismatic but none the less important. Australia has an appalling extinction record, and I am determined to not let the bilby join this list on my watch," Bradley says.
